What is MedInnovate?

Do you want to find out about medical innovation? Do you want to develop a concept that can solve a clinical need? Do you want to find a good idea for a start-up company?

Then you should join MedInnovate, a hands-on seminar where you learn how to successfully identify unmet clinical needs within the clinical routine and work towards possible and realistic solutions to solve those needs. You get to know tools helping you to be a successful innovator in medical technology. This includes all steps from needs finding and selection to defining appropriate solution concepts, including the development of first prototypes. During the course, necessary steps for successful idea and concept creation are presented and fully realized in interdisciplinary project teams. During the project phase, each team is supported by coaches from academia, industry and medicine, in order to allow for direct and continuous exchange.

Course Features

  • Work in interdisciplinary teams.
  • Spend a minimum of three full days in full clinical immersion, identifying unmet needs.
  • Get training by UnternehmerTUM tutors about coordinated brain storming, needs identification, needs selection and concept generation.
  • Build your first prototype, with support from UnternehmerTUM MakerSpace.

Who should participate?

We accept and encourage students of all disciplines to join for this lab course. Focusing on medical technology and applications to the clinical routine, we anticipate a broad field of studies as main audience, including:
  • Computer scientists
  • Engineers of any kind
  • Biologists, chemists, physicists
  • Business administration and economics students
  • Industrial Designers

Students should have basic knowledge and understanding of medical technology, with an interest in innovation within the field. Due to the interdisciplinarity of project teams, skills within the respective area of specialty will be required throughout the progress of the lab course. We encourage students to work pro-actively with exchange within, but also across the borders of the teams.

Passing requirements

  • Active participation and presence in all workshops and meetings
  • Submission of all assignments in time
  • Presentation of intermediate and final concept work.
